What's New For 2018?
Despite a few changes being made to available equipment, almost everything from the 2017 Honda Civic carries over.
The 2018 Honda Civic is available in three different body styles - the sedan, the hatchback, and the coupe. Each of these styles is available in multiple configurations, leaving you with a number of options to choose from. For those who are disappointed by Honda's discontinuation of the Accord coupe, the Civic coupe is the closest alternative in terms of style.
Opt for the 2018 Honda Civic sedan, and you can take your pick of six different trim levels: the LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, Touring, and Si. The hatchback comes with three of its own specific trims: the Sport, Sport Touring, and Type R. Finally, the coupe only comes with one specific trim, the LX-P. For being a base trim, the LX is jam-packed with desirable features and proves to be an affordable and well-rounded choice. You can get the Honda Sensing safety package on almost any of these trim levels, and it is recommended that you consider doing so since the package adds lane departure warning, forward collision warning and mitigation, and adaptive cruise control.
The 2018 Honda Civic has impeccable driving capabilities. The 1.5-L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that you can opt for on some of the trims is particularly powerful and is well worth the cost to upgrade. There is plenty of low-end power, which allows the Civic to quickly accelerate from 0 to 60 in 6.7 seconds, making this one of the best acceleration speeds in its class. As far as braking goes, the 2018 Civic has some of the most predictable and secure-feeling brakes around. Steering also has a relaxed and natural feel to it and provides just the right amount of feedback to the driver. Also, the Civic handles well in almost all conditions. There is no uncontrolled body roll, and the suspension provides a good amount of spunk. For the utmost in sporty performances, the Type R and Si are both worth checking out.
As is the tradition with Honda vehicles, the 2018 Civic gets a stellar fuel economy regardless of which configuration you buy. Most of them get a combined mpg that ranges in the mid-30s. The EX sedan gets an impressive 36 mpg combined (32 mpg city/42 mpg highway), while the other trim levels get slightly less. The Type R trim gets the worst fuel economy of the bunch at 25 mpg combined (22 mpg city/28 mpg highway). But, of course, if you're buying the super-sporty Type R, you aren't buying it for its fuel economy. After all, the Type R is the height of fun when it comes to driving a Honda Civic.
It is impossible to go wrong with any configuration of the 2018 Honda Civic. This small sedan packs a mighty punch in terms of power and performance. The Civic always feels comfortable, secure, and steady, yet it never compromises on fun. If there is one vehicle that needs to be test-driven this year, it's the Civic.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Honda Civic
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Honda Civic invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates, incentives & options invoice pricing at here.)
Note: All Honda Civic MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
